For racing drivers, Winter is hibernation season, as they both recharge their batteries and prepare for another year of speed, excitement and fight for victory. For Moh Ritson, however, time off has been at a premium, as he juggles school work and media commitments ahead of his 2020 campaign.
Hi, I’m Moh! I’m a 17-year-old student, who has a burning desire and passion for motor racing, and at just 15, I was offered the chance to turn my dreams into reality, as I passed both my ARKS and ARDS tests to gain both karting and racing licences, and embark on a path to becoming a professional racing driver.
As a diagnosed dyslexic, a driver that has not been nurtured from an early age or made progress through the karting ranks, I have taken the long route to get to where I am today, but the hard work doesn’t stop here, as I look to forge a career in the sport I love.

"You made a great impact on us all" - Richard John Neil (Television Motorsport Commentator)
"I am exceptionally proud of Moh. To have maintained the third fastest lap for much of the race and then be fourth fastest overall is great. His ability to work with the mechanics to get the car set-up right has paid off. All of the team are thrilled. He's shown what he's capable of with this performance in wet conditions." Simon Moore (Manager of Tockwith Motorsports)
"One of the best when it came to the media assessment, he would be a great ambassador for any brand - (PR & Marketing Ginetta)
"Moh was very impressive in all three areas assessed, he comes across as a very likeable, young man and would be a great asset to any brand that backs his racing exploits...he would certainly be able to compete at a good level judging by how he performed at the Scholarship" - Ashley Gallagher (Ginetta Championships Manager)
"The feedback on Moh was very positive. Our media team were particularly impressed with his ability to present himself and articulate what he understood about Ginetta. Keep up the good work I am sure he will go far"- Paul Zwicky Ross (Ginetta Commercial Manager)
To work with partner businesses so that we can both grow. To use my experience and development path in racing as an example of what can be achieved even when you don't approach things in the 'usual' way.
Having started with very little experience - to serving my "apprenticeship", developing my skills in the Junior Saloon Car Championship, I then moved to race against Seniors in the Dunlop Britcar Endurance Championship. Now I am taking the step towards an international career by entering the European circuit.
My goal is to one day compete on the global stage in the World Endurance Championship and ultimately, Le Mans. It's going to be tough, but I'm used to putting in the hard work and I am prepared for the challenge. With a little bit of support, I'm confident I can make it.
